There's No Place Like Home!

Well, we made it home around 3:00pm on Thursday afternoon. All the tests came back clear. That is great news except for the fact that we don't know what caused her to have that episode. They ruled out a seizure and heart issue. At least she is okay now.

The hospital stay was a little rough. They did vitals every four hours so by the time I got her back to sleep it was time to get up again. The worst part of all the tests was the EEG. She was a trooper though. We sang our way through and in the end she impressed the nurse who administered the test.
Everyone was great. Super friendly and helpful. I have to say, St. Mary's is at the top of our list of hospitals. They have been great!

I couldn't help myself at 4:00am when Syd sat up for her vitals. Her hair was a mess!! She is still adorable, can't say much for mommy at 4:00am, but we made it through together.

She was so excited to see her bubbies and sissy when she got home. She ran to all of them and hugs were all around. She was on cloud nine until round 5:30. She started throwing up. It was the nastiest smelling stuff I have ever smelled in my life. I was gagging uncontrollably. Poor girl. I no sooner got her out of the tub when she did it again. I called the doc to see if she thought everything was okay. We cut her off all fluids and solids for 2hours. After that she handled some Gatorade. I slept with her in the basement and my sister stayed upstairs on the couch. She came home from Olivet when she heard what was happening. Thanks Kate! You have been a lifesaver the past few days.

Rob has been horribly sick the past two days. He went to he doctor on the verge of needing IV fluids. He has rounded the corner and is starting to come out of it. I however was hoping to make it through the fog unfazed. However, my stomach has been hurting all night and I don't feel quite right. I am hoping that it will all pass tonight when I go to bed.

Thank you for all your prayers and concerns. It was so uplifting to hear about the people around the country praying for our family. It is truly amazing how God has taken care of us. You all are family to us.
